Eagles Soar, seal pups, and sea otters hang out on the beach while their moms forage for food amongst the kelp.

Tide pools contain purple, and orange giant starfish, anenomes, and many other wonders! Eagles dive and catch salmon before your very eyes.

About Lynsey

Meet Team Smith, at the Waterfalls at Mount Constitution on a snowy Christmas day on Orcas! We use to rent the cabin across the street every summer when the kids were little, and after one summer was over, we never left! We bought this magical setting on Lodge Lane when there was just a small cabin on the property and with lots of love and creativity from the kids and our neighbors, we built our dream cottage, that raised the awesome Smith kids! Now that they are out on their own, and making the world a better place, we wanted to share our special piece of Orcas Island with others to make some sweet family memories of their own! (While we have been members of VRBO for many years, we only rented a few weeks out the past several years which is why there are so few reviews. This year is our first year back renting our home)

Lynsey purchased this house in 2006

Why Lynsey chose Eastsound

This property is unique in that it is nestled off a private lane that use to be an apple orchard. Kayaks and a cane are included in the rental price, a significant savings over renting for the day.

The wide open sunny yards adorned with apple trees is rare on an island that is filled with large evergreens, high banks and forest. The beach is low bank, and a cove so wildlife is protected from boats which makes the area is very quiet. Mt Baker stands proudly across the water with the 3 sisters on one side and the Canadian Rockies on the other. A truly magical land!

Fabuous place for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Orcas is a beautiful place for a relaxing vacation, with hiking, shopping, and great dining options galore. Our family of 7 felt completely at home in this absolutely lovely slice of heaven! We loved being just across the road from the beach - with fabulous views of Mt. Baker. The house is within easy driving distance of Eastsound, Moran State Park, and everything else the island has to offer. We had plenty of room to spread out and relax - indoors, on the wraparound porch or lawn. The kitchen was well-stocked, beds & linens were very comfy, there were games and books to browse, sea kayaks, and a piano for musical entertainment! Everything was top notch.

Lynsey was very helpful with advice, and easy to communicate with.

We particularly enjoyed hiking in Moran State Park & Turtleback Mountain Preserve, eating at Doe Bay Cafe', Brown Bear Baking, New Leaf Cafe' & Clever Cow Creamery.

We would all love to come back again!

Even better than I could imagine...

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed this house. It was beautiful and had more than we ever expected. When we arrived there was a sweet basket filled with goodies, including a pound of locally ground coffee, which was a lovely touch for this family that travels with an espresso machine.

The setting was amazing with a huge covered porch that looked across fruit trees and out to the sound. There were lots of places to sit outside, and we enjoyed pulling out our board games to play in the evening. Also, a group of deer would join us close to sunset to feast on the apple trees. We enjoyed the kayak and canoe and feasted on crab from a neighbor one night.

Before we arrived, I was a bit nervous because there were 8 in our group -- two families, which included four teenagers. However, there was plenty of space for everyone to take some time apart and plenty of bathrooms for primping. My nephew enjoyed basketball on the sport court every morning as he waited for everyone to get ready.

The homeowner was extremely gracious in answering my questions. I would definitely rent this home again.

DEFINATELY choose this house!

  • 5 of 5

This house is awesome! We had our family reunion here, and everyone of all ages had something different they loved. It is a huge sunny, grassy lot. The beach is right across the gravel road and down a few gradual steps. The kayak and canoe are down on the beach. Mt Baker is as beautiful at sunset as the picture shows. The house has furniture in it you would not normally find in a rental home. VERY comfy beds and bedding and everything you need in the kitchen. You can bike ride to the town from the house.
